Winner Medical Acquires Majority Stake in Pingan Medical to Fuel Growth

Winner Medical | June 02, 2022

Winner Medical

Winner Medical Co. Ltd. a leading manufacturer of disposable wound care and surgical products, announced on May 18 that it will acquire a majority 65.55% stake in Hunan Pingan Medical Device Technology Co. Ltd. for 652 million yuan as the Company continues to expand its disposable medical supply lineup.

Upon the completion of the deal, Winner Medical is set to hold a total of 68.7% stake in Pingan Medical for a total of 752 million yuan.

The Company's move comes as it looks to make a foray into the field of injection products to diversify its product offerings besides consumer products, and comes in line with its strategy to provide one-stop disposable medical supply solutions.

Established in 2010, Pingan Medical mainly produces disposable medical devices, such as syringes, infusion sets, and blood collection tubes among other medical supplies. In 2021, Pingan Medical recorded 360 million yuan in revenue and booked a net profit of 85 million yuan.

The acquisition will leverage both companies' strengths and help fill the product gap in injection-related disposables of Winner Medical, enabling it to expand into new medical verticals and achieve its goal of becoming a major supplier for the domestic market.

Specifically, the Company plans to roll out medical sets that comprise needle-type products from Pingan Medical and wound care supplies from Winner Medical, providing one-stop customized solutions for hospitals and large medical centers.

Meanwhile, Winner Medical will help Pingan Medical with its industry-leading R&D capabilities to develop medical device solutions and build smart manufacturing plants.

To fuel the growth based on the new deal, Winner Medical has signed an investment note with the local government of Li County in Hunan Province, where Pingan Medical is headquartered, to build medical equipment production lines, smart warehousing, and R&D facilities.

The latest deal follows Winner Medical's April-11 acquisition of wound dressing maker Zhejiang Longterm Medical Technology Co. Ltd. as part of its expansion strategy to stay competitive in the area of high-end wound dressings. The Company has also set up a dedicated team to promote its self-developed wound dressing products as the market for such medical supplies is still in its infancy in China.

Founded in 1991, Winner Medical has made efforts to offer quality cotton-based medical dressings and disposables, and will continue to push ahead with its strategy to diversify its product lineup and boost consumption. On the manufacturing front, the Company aims to expand to new medical verticals through acquisitions, while on the consumption front, it plans to enhance product sales through digitization and gradually phasing out less popular products.

As such, the Company has made significant progress in digitizing its operations. Winner Medical has gone live on multiple e-commerce platforms, and has gone digital in terms of online and offline warehousing and order management.

Juvare Introduces Data Automation Process from EMResource to NHSN

Juvare | December 28, 2022

A leader in crisis and emergency management technology, Juvare recently announced successfully automating the transfer of hospital bed capacity data from EMResource to National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), run by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). EMResource data has been used as part of the national response to COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. This has enabled flexible data collection from hospitals and improved visibility at both the state and federal levels. According to estimates, data obtained from EMResource served as the single most important source for hospital information. “McKinsey Institute estimates that automating different tasks can raise productivity growth to 1.4% annually” The company believes that the ability to quickly help hospitals and public health stakeholders keep track of the situation across a region or state and respond to changing regulatory needs without giving healthcare providers more work is a unique feature. Even when there are no federal rules or requirements, EMResource helps states and healthcare coalitions keep track of the capacity and availability of healthcare resources. During the pandemic, Juvare made a number of important changes to the EMResource platform. For example, it updated the user interface and gave hospitals across the state access to APIs so that they could automate data in a way that had never been done before. Also, the company launched the JX Connector integration platform to help the public sector update its digital systems by quickly connecting different data streams. The integration of EMResource and NHSN was done faster with Juvare's JX Connector, a platform for integration-as-a-service. About Juvare Juvare Enterprise Resilience Solutions help organizations connect to the important resources, data, and mutual help they need to bounce back after disasters or other problems. Juvare has helped with over 500,000 emergency response situations each year in more than 25 countries.

UCM Digital Health and MVP Health Care Announce Treatment in Place Program

UCM Digital Health | January 25, 2023

On January 24, 2023, UCM Digital Health, a leader in the digital health industry, and MVP Health Care, a nationally renowned health plan, launched the Treatment in Place program. With the help of this new initiative, MVP members will have access to the proper care at the correct time, no matter where they are – at home, at work, or elsewhere. When an MVP member dials 911, an EMS provider is sent to the member's location, activating the Treatment in Place program. The program gives EMTs and paramedics from partner organizations access to the UCM team, including their medical staff and care coordinators, to help treat patients more effectively right where they are. Using telemedicine, EMTs or paramedics collaborate with a doctor trained in emergency medicine at UCM to treat patients that have non-life-threatening conditions swiftly. The patient is given appropriate, high-quality, and cost-effective care through a combination of hands-on and virtual care without the need to visit the emergency room. This program benefits the patient and lets EMS organizations save on the cost of transporting the patient to the emergency room. For instance, EMS professionals can quickly evaluate the patient's vital signs, conduct a physical examination, analyze social determinants of health, or run a diagnostic test inside the patient's home. This program lets EMS organizations use their resources well, allowing them to treat more patients at their location so they can focus on true emergencies. This service is available to MVP members across 18 counties in New York through UCM's relationships with 911 centers and EMS organizations across the state. There are plans to expand the service throughout the state. Furthermore, the Treatment in Place program helps lessen the burden on health systems as hospitals continue to experience capacity and staffing shortages. UCM Digital Health, a virtual care provider, enables MVP's Gia telemedicine platform. About UCM Digital Health Headquartered in Troy (New York), UCM Digital Health provides an end-to-end, digitally integrated health solution that enables patients to access care on their terms. UCM offers various patient services, including emergency and urgent care, behavioral health, primary and specialty care, and more.
